-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right. going to focus on the middle east and northern africa, libya specifically. mitt romney as you noted, wil
profoundly unhelpful with syria and the obama administration has called the russians out on that. on iran, the russias were instrumental in getting us the u.n. security council resolution in 2010, that put in place unprecedented administrations that the bush administration could only have dreamed of. >> i have to leave it there. former member of the administration, thanks for coming on. >> happy to be here. >>> wall street hit a five-year high. market rundown is next. plus, critical county. live in ohio. one of those 15 counties that may decide the presidential election. but first, today's trivia question. who was the first vice president to not become president? tweet me the answer. first correct answer will get a warm bucket of spit from us. no, the answer and more is coming up. we'll be right back. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe
? is it president obama's policiless or go back to the bush administration and their policiless . i have an opinion that said largely president obama's fail add policiless >> going back to the bill clinton premise. no one could have fixed it in four years. >> that is flat out wrong. >> it may be. but that is very effective argument. >> but we have short memories because ronald reagan fixed a worse recession with his policies in '81 and he was fixing that problem and fixed a terrible recession and brought american back to prosperity. that is all my opinion. >> brian: we'll discuss this at 9:20. >> at length. >> brian: what will you wear for the debate tonight? >> stop it. >> steve: coordinating your wardrobe now. no, padded seats like a dog. >> brian: great to surf with. this is a very serious story. americans murdered in lebia, just bumps in the road and president's recent comments about the benghazi terrorist attacks has our next guest outraged. he is a former navy seal. >> is the bro-mance over. is ben affleck having buyer's remorse. >> oh, no. call the hollywood reporter. ♪ ♪ there's the sig
concerning the obama administration's investigation of the attack on our consulate in libya. first, the white house is refusing now to comment on reports that washington denied requests for more security prior to that september 11th attack that killed four americans in libya. white house spokesman jay carney says he will not comment on a situation under review, that's a quote. second, reuters is now reporting that administration officials received about a dozen intelligence reports in the hours after the attack suggesting that this was terrorism. despite all this, days later, the white house dispatched u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice on a round of talk shows claiming these attacks were spontaneous and incited by an anti-islamic film. andy card is a former white house chief of staff under president george w. bush, and he's with me now. andy, so now the administration is going silent on it, saying we're not going to respond to this bombshell report out of congress that this is from the house oversight committee saying that they've got a bun p of whistleblowers who are now sayin
reporting they had about a dozen intelligence reports, the obama administration did, suggesting it was al-qaeda-related militants who were involved in this. so we're talking by wednesday at the latest. it was sunday that susan rice went out on the talk shows, sunday. and not just one, and not an inadvertent comment saying, i think, look, it's confusing, it could have been one of a number of things. it was all the way -- you know, sunday, five days later when she came out and said, i'm telling you, it was spontaneous, it was about the video, it wasn't a preplanned thing. they were ruling out things in addition to ruling -- how does a u.n. ambassador get sent out by the administration? >> she shouldn't have been. if, in fact, and i suspect the administration knew that susan rice was going to go out there and talk to the media on that sunday, that's preplanned, and there was lots of communication with her before she went out, they should have told her what they expected her to say sw what they anticipated the questions to be and potential answers. tend not allow her or encourage her to answe
of the past four years in the obama administration is how much policy has been driven from the white house. some presidents at least give lip service to cabinet government and empowering their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious, one, in a second obama term was a continuation of the pattern, and with romney how do you think he would run things in terms of the relationship between the department and the white house? governor. >> i think we've strayed some distance from constitutional government in the sense the white house staff has been built up with layers of folks who kind of cushion the president from the departments and agencies. so i compare and contrast just by being a low-level staffer under reagan on the advanced staff, and seen that the universe of high profile cabinet members who interacted at least from what i can see, more directly with the president. and now we have layers that kind of cushion the president, a deputy chief of staff for policy or whatever the case might be. and i think we're drifting farther and farther away from that
said about half the energy companies supported by the obama administration going bankrupt. he didn't actually mean that. sort of rolled over from democratic and liberal bewilderment last night that mr. romney was abandoning his main economic plan that he was running on, his $5 trillion tax cut plan, his big trickle-down plan, to be rolled over from democrats being bewildered about that to the beltway press and mainstream pundits i think now having a hard time deciding whether they are supposed to call that a lie or whether they're supposed to just say this is a radically new position for the candidate and welcome to it. joining us now, jonathan alter, columnist for "bloomberg news" and msnbc political analyst. mr. alter, great to have you here. >> hi, rachel. >> how does president obama counter the strategy of mitt romney's to unveil whole new ideas or deny he ever held the ideas that he plainly has held? it's one thing to have a truth squad fact checking online. how do you counter that at the podium? >> one is i'm rubber, you're glue, bounces off and sticks to you. trickle-down, t
, and the obama administration, i mean, last night, he, you know, said oil and gas increased under my watch, which is true, a lot is private initiative, so i think the administration, because of the job aspect of it, because of the economic development aspect, because of what it does to american competitiveness, he's come around to a position to be broadly supportive, differently from romney, but in a way that, you know, some of it -- their own supporters of the administration haven't liked. i mean there's clear differences like the keystone pipeline one area of a very sharp difference. gerri: i want to bring up green energy for a second, spending $90 billion on companies. these a taxpayer dollars, not private sector dollars. is it worth it? >> i think that when you look at the growth that's going to be out there in terms of energy demand, it makes sense to diversify. i think the lesson of the last few years is government has a clear role in terms of research and development, bringing technologies, but when the government tries to be a private equity investor, a venture capital investor, they get
no mistake -- >> president obama at the rose garden. now, david axelrod and others in the administration are now saying that he was quick to label the benghazi killings an act of terror based on his wording there. keeping them honest, that was both the first and last time that he used that word in relation to this. even days later, no one in the administration even came close to that language. listen. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. at will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begi
with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bomber on the airplane. it was done
looks of the obama administration's use of drone strikes in pakistan and yemen. the west virginia's governors' debate. charles schumer talks about tax policy. >> it is the 15th anniversary of c-span radio. here to talk with us about this is nancy. she has been with c-span radio since the beginning. >> c-span was created on october 9, 1997, by the cable television industry. it is another way to access c- span's public affairs programming. we bring you our commitment to live coverage of the house and senate proceedings, including the house lame-duck session that will be happening after the elections. they will be working on the fiscal cliff. also, we bring you public policy events, including congressional hearings. looking into the attack on the consulate in benghazi, libya. all of our events are -- former without interruption or commentary. that is some of what we do on c- span radio. >> has the mission ground in 15 years? >> -- a ground in 15 years? >> it has changed since technology has changed. c-span brady was available in the washington, d.c. area. shortly thereafter, we becam
the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the attack to fit a convenient storyline that it was spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: rogers, who told fox one day after the attack that it was, indeed, terrorism, saying the statement from the director of national intelligence on friday appeared to be an effort to obscure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about this. again, americans need to understand the truth, and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> reporter: fox news asked an administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows over current career intelligence officials including adviser john brennan, national security adviser donilon, james clap
in a second obama administration. he is very much looking forward to this. >> you have been pressing the romney campaign for specifics, today we got one specifics suggesting maybe there would be a cap on deductions at $17,000 for mortgage interest deductions, charitable contributions, that's a pretty specific number, what do you think about that? >> i think that the net result is still the same. that is specific, but he has not told us how he will do that without raising taxes on the middle class. even if you're capping deductions, separating them into different buckets with different caps on them. you're still raising taxes on the middle class. even his own economists that he relies on says you can't cut taxes by $5 trillion out paying for it by cutting deductions for people making $200,000 and less. that's just a fact. you can't do it. even if you close every single deduction for people making over $200,000, or $250,000 for families, you're still a trillion short. so he has to tell us how he will do this without increasing taxes on the middle class. so far the math does not add up.
administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look, we have spent more money
be a $1,700 tax on american families, and that number comes from the obama administration. >> 30 seconds. >> let's stipulate we are not going to do cap and trade. senator fisher says human beings are not warming the planet, and i say we are. i say it is a compelling problem and we need to address it. we need to have a debate about how we are going to address it and what our strategy is going to be. otherwise, we are going to wonder why we did not do anything about it. >> a question for senator kerry. >> there is a lot of discussion about lowering tax rates by limiting deductions on loopholes, but one person's loophole is another person's deduction for mortgage interest or state and local taxes. would you favor eliminating or reducing any of those, or would you offer other specific changes? >> the big four are markets reductions, and i think you can scale it back. i think there is a great pay off through simplification. you have got to believe it. you have to believe simplification can generate more revenue. if it generates more revenue, you cannot do it. i think there is a huge pay off t
the obama administration to a second term to be anywhere near negotiating with a bat government called the united nations on our freedom? not a one of them have a bill of rights like the united states of america. they are about government. there gun plan is to turn over your firearms and protections to the government. the government will protect you. does anyone think that will happen? that you end plan is about global agencies monitoring, surveillance, lists, all institutionalized within the bureaucracy of the united nations with a permanent funding mechanism largely paid for by u.s. taxpayers. nowhere do they talk about due process, privacy, individual rights, freedom, a bill of rights. what we are about here in the united states of america. i guarantee you this, if your glass bricks at 2:00 at night from a criminal, you all know the baby blue helmets from the u.n. will not be there to protect the. and neither will president obama or eric holder. what will protect you is the freedom we have under the second amendment of the constitution. there is not a government or an authority on t
is about a critique of the obama administration. that is a common topic of calendars. the critiques of the president public foreign policy. there are differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are subsequent. much to the surprise, even some of his own advisers at the time, but rather than backing away from he has continued to emphasize that and say basically that he has emphasize -- emphasize that descending supplies into afghanistan, which has become a significant issue. we're example, >> that is a serious difference. there are others as well. for example, how to stop iran from producing a nuclear weapon. it is not entirely clear. it is pretty hard to tell. >> host: good morning. we have a caller joining us. >> caller: how are you doing? thank you. i definitely agree with the lady talking about the foreign-policy issues. because i think that mitt romney is an opportunist. benjamin netanyahu on foreign policy, obama is actually steadfast -- you know, you talk to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours, so it's not like he has been dodging them. he
the romney administration in terms of relations with congress? and with obama in a second term, would he do things differently? or would you suggest to do in terms of congressional relations? >> my sense of president obama as he would learn or at least be instructed by those around him to learn the mistakes of his first term as it relates doing with congress, which i think is a disaster. easier for members of his own party in capitol hill, want to do a deal, want want to strike out, went to get things done, we don't have any real engagement on the part of the president. i think if you want bold initiatives through, you know, as was the case of health care commute out of have something to legislature and say take it. you frame it. you frame 80% of it, try to the legislatures they get it done. there's got to be workable for them. is that too, had, but she's got to frame the outcome of 75, 80% in order to drive it home. and that's the president and the executive branch address it on the bully pulpit. so i think there will be probably some rethinking about the legislative strategy if there is a
obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. those were not tim kaine accolades. those are things we did working together. when the president ask that i serve as the and seek share, i think i had my best year. we got smoking banned. all three publication ranked virginia the best place in the united states. we saw a huge improvements in infant mortality. we recruited numerous businesses in the heart of the recession to come to a virginia. rolls-royce opened a m
to put them in bankruptcy. we will never know an alternate history, but what the obama administration did not do is it created a series of programs designed to keep the impact of these bankruptcies to a minimum. gm for years had warned a bankruptcy, people would not buy cars, so they created a supplier support program, so suppliers would get paid, the government would ensure the suppliers which get paid, the factories would keep running, although the terms were onerous. they created a board to guarantee, where the president said we will ensure your warranties are honored. the key breakthrough in terms of getting these companies through was using 363, a provision, where the government came in with its brick force, a huge amount of money, and outbid everybody else with these assets. alternative plans, governor romney has said this could have been done privately and the government could have guaranteed the financing in bankruptcy. the real question that is hard to enter is could an alternative that did not use the section of the bankruptcy code -- the government said to the court we're makin
. as yet what are the noteworthy aspects of the last four years in the obama administration how much policy has been driven from the white house? some presidents give lip service to the cabinet government and in power and their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious to get a second obama term what we see the continuation of the pattern in which romney, how do you think that he would write things in terms of the relationship in the department and the white house? >> i think we have strayed some distance from the government in the sense that the white house staff has been built up with the lawyers of folks that had to cushion the president from the departments and agencies. sallai compare and contrast just be kind of low-level staffer under ronald reagan on the advanced staff and seeing the universe of high-profile kavanagh members who interjected at least from what i could see more directly with the president and now we have lawyers that kind of cushion the president and the deputy chief of staff of policy or whatever the case might be. and i think tha
, then u.s. senator u.s. senator obama implied that the bush administration had descriminated against victims of hurricane katrina. cnn reported the event at the time, but the conservative website called "daily caller" is out with the full version of the speech, saying it's an exclusive videotape. we did cover this when it happened. that conservative website is arguing that it is evidence of president obama, then senator obama, whipping up race hatred. for more on this story and how it's -- how did this 5-year-old tape that did get mainstream media coverage end up resurfacing now as some sort of exclusive showing something that we apparently had all never seen before? >> well, ashleigh, it's a political year. this tape plays very well to the republican base. it's being billed on the right as obama's other race speech, so at a time when some suggest a republican challenger doesn't seem to be getting much traction, the one thing we know what works is dredging up anti-obama sentiments to get the base fired up. now, yes, this is clearly old news. it was well covered five years ago. the ot
president reagan did in the czech republic. president obama seems to have missed that. he comes into these things late. his own administration describes him as leading by following. you don't lead by following. if you're following, you're following. that's what we see in seyria. that's what we saw in libya, in egypt. and now we see tremendous confusion on the part of this administration about what's really going on in the middle east. you look at libya, it's a scandal. i mean, what happened with libya is an absolute scandal of the b biggest proportions. i think only because the campaign is going on is it being held back. the white house, it seems to me, knew there was real danger to that ambassador. not only did they provide the security necessary, it sounds to me that they reduced the security, which is astounding. i don't know if that's true. one congressman told me that. if that's true, that's astounding. >> you saw secretary of state madeleine albright call romney speech full of platitude and free of substance. >> i'm sure the former secretary of state would say that. the re
served with two presidents. i served with president bush for lee years and president obama for a years i was a different party than president bush and we dinet agree on everything, but i worked very closely with the bush administration on a number of key initiatives, always looking to partners to put virginia first. rail to dulles is being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work togethers about we worked together with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the president of the united states, whoever that president is. i also have a great track record of working across lines, first as a nonpartisan mayor here in richmond and second as a governor in a republican house. i governed in the most difficult economy since the 1930s, but we were the best managed state in america, governing magazine, the best state for business all four years i was governor, forbes magazine, and the best place to raise a child. education week. those weren't tim kaine accolades, th
